Kikuichi’s Semi-Stainless series holds a fantastic edge. Professional chefs love a carbon steel blade edge and this this proprietary steel has a high carbon content which means it performs like a carbon steel blade. It won’t rust like a carbon blade, but will patina. It’s recommended to cultivate the patina. Strong and substantial without feeling heavy this blade takes a fine grained edge and holds it well. A Santoku knife rivals the Gyuto in its functionality and multipurpose ability with its slight curve in the blade profile. Literally translated to three virtues, this knife performs at a high-level for meat fish and vegetables. It's profile exhibits a shorter and thinner blade which makes it user-friendly and versatile.
